Cost of communications study


The client was the Economic Issues Cluster of government national departments. Information was required on the cost of

communications, both in terms of comparative international data and domestic information.

The solution approach

BMI-T undertook an in-depth study of the South African telecommunications landscape. A full review of the South African telecommunications environment was conducted, key bottlenecks and problems identified and a plan of corrective action submitted.

Comprehensive desk and primary research established a set of benchmark data which enabled BMI-T to benchmark domestic prices and key indicators against that of six peer countries.

The outcome

The results of the project were presented to the Department of Communications, the Economic Cluster and to Cabinet.
